    They rebuilt the bridge in Genoa in record time, I'm sure you guys can be just as quick, if you put your head to it.

    They dropped the DEI narrative real quick after that one immediately collapsed...
    A sad, but also kind of funny one is Florida's high speed train kill rate.

    Italy went through two separate waves of terrorist attacks, their periods overlapping a bit. One was the Anni Di Piombo, the Lead Years, and the other was the Strategia Della Tensione (The Strategy of Tension).
    In the first, an alleged 'leftist' terrorist organisation called Brigate Rosse undertook several killings and attacks on people working for the State, like police officers and judges. But they also attacked one trade union officer (Guido Rossa) and, famously, kidnapped and killed Aldo Moro, at the time one of the most important political figures in the leading DC party.
    It's been known for a while that this terrorist organisation was observed and infiltrated by intelligence services, and not just Italy's.

    The other strand manifested itself with bombings of public places, like bank branches and trains, aimed at killing normal people; pretty much the definition of terrorism, and similar in aim to the Moscow attack. The worst even was the bombing of the Bologna train station, in 1980. The official narrative described these acts as done by far-right organisations, but they were mostly organised with the cooperation, more or less involved, of intelligence services (again, Italy's, but others too).

    People growing up / living in Italy in that period were pretty used to this kind of violence.
    It has now basically stopped, for reasons that it would be too long to speculate on here.

    Greg Abbott cracks down on the many pogroms currently plaguing Texas:

    Antisemitism will not be tolerated in Texas.

    Today, I issued an Executive Order to fight the increase in acts of antisemitism at Texas colleges & universities.

    Texas stands with our Jewish students.

    We will ensure our college campuses are safe spaces for the Jewish community.
    It's about time Texas did something to nip this developing holocaust in the bud!

    In all seriousness though, it's hilarious how Ziocons turn on a dime from mocking the leftist language of "safe spaces" to forcefully creating them. I don't really see this as a negative though, as I only expect such behavior to increase as the magic holding together all the reality-inverting spells continues to break down.

    No, we can't, because have ingenious shit like The Foreign Dredge Act of 1906 in place, right here in the Land of The Free and the Home of the Brave.

    Baltimore Bridge Disaster Clean-up Slowed Thanks to Dredge Act Protectionism

    The Foreign Dredge Act is an older cousin to the more well-known and infamous Jones Act, which bans foreign-built ships from moving goods between American ports. As a result, it drives up shipping prices to places to Puerto Rico and Hawaii, adds traffic to American highways, and leaves sizable parts of the country without access to natural gas.

    Like the Jones Act, the Foreign Dredge Act is a purely protectionist law that forbids foreign-built dredges—vessels built to remove debris from waterways and to deepen and widen shipping channels—from operating in the U.S. Any foreign dredge caught doing work in American waters is subject to immediate forfeiture.

    The law was originally meant to protect American dredge-building companies from foreign competition. More than a century later, however, the primary outcome of the Foreign Dredge Act has been severely curtailing the number of dredges available to do important work like removing the wreckage of the Key Bridge. Many that are in use are sub-standard compared to the rest of the world. The Army Corp of Engineers is still using dredges built in the 1930s, for example, while a recent study from Tulane University found that "the combined capacity of the U.S. [hopper dredge] fleet is less than a single EU [European Union] dredging vessel."

    But this is an emergency, Rip. Haven't we well established that laws, up to and including the Constitution, are considered optional now, when it's an emergency?

    You think there were no regulations in the Genoa case, from required anti-mafia certifications to EU-mandated compliance for the tender notice? Plus all the appeal processes available at each step? They were simply waived through, or executed with indecent haste. They demolished the remains of the old bridge with explosive charges, collapsing the hulking concrete structure in the middle of city streets, and nobody raised a peep.
    Legally, a key factor was to nominate the mayor of Genoa and the Governor of the Liguria Region as 'Commissars', i.e. plenipotentiaries; in practice, benevolent dictators tasked with the job of getting that bridge done as quickly as physically possible. I'm sure you Yanks are up to the same task.

    I would gladly hear more about the attacks on farmers silently occurring while terrorist attacks in Moscow have our attention.

    Is it time to stop supporting all AIPAC-endorsed Republican candidates, consequences be damned?
    At best, Abbot and Desantis have pretended to do something about immigration while tolerating record numbers of criminals invading the country.

    Colonel Mcgregor has been adamant that no one man, including Trump can save us; the deep state has grown too powerful.
    Alex Jones now says he will withdraw all support from Trump if he gets even a whiff of Jared Kushner being involved again.

    These anti-American attitudes and anti-free speech laws regarding anti-semitism are the exact thing that happened during the Bolshevik Revolution.

    Think you are safe?
    ANYONE can be accused and charged for almost any reason.

    There have already been cases of 13-14 year old kids being investigated/charged under the new anti-American hate speech laws for private conversations within chat or social media apps.
    Better hope that NSA data center with 20 years of text messages doesn't find one in which you used an anti-semitic word, like "hag".

    Just a moment...

    THE CASE FOR SECESSION
    On Tuesday, a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Texas cannot enforce its border control law, SB 4, because it conflicts with federal law that preempts the field of immigration. The decision is here. Jonathan Turley analyzes the issue here.

    ... Of course, no state would secede over an issue of less than enormous importance. But for Texas and other border states–and perhaps for some non-border states as well–illegal immigration is an issue of unparalleled significance.
    We shall see. Shal it be secession, or Civil War? Civilizational Jenga - by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

    Because the astonishing pieces of shit running the country don't seem to care that their actions will precipitate one or the other.

    I resent you implying that I'm attacking farmers. I love the farmers, they are my clients!
